  • Grab ‘n Go Lunches are free for kids ages 0 to 18.

More than 3,800 DeKalb school children qualify for free/reduced lunch during the school year. We believe NONE of them should go hungry.

Feeding the Hungry, Building Relationships

In 2012 Summer Lunch opened its doors to feed hungry DeKalb children. It was great to offer lunch to kids, but it was soon clear there were hungry parents as well.  The following year Summer Lunch and More opened its doors to children AND adults.

Since 2013 over 31,000 meals, including fresh fruits, vegetables, and hot entrées, have been served to hungry residents of the area as community volunteers join together to feed the hungry and build relationships.

Due to COVID-19 our 2020 lunch program has a different look. Grab ‘n Go lunches are available for kids ages 0 to 18. Take home lunches available for Friday. Snacks for parents available.
